Ray can't wait to attend the big family reunion of Morets, Baptistes, and Radcliffs being held in Louisiana. The families are part of a long line of Creole ancestors. But the estrangement of Ray's Papa from Gran-papa Phillippe threatens to keep the family from attending the reunion. Ray doesn't know why Papa hates Gran-papa so much so it's hurtful when Papa tells Ray "you too much like your Gran-papa." Ray hopes Gran-papa Phillippe will be at the reunion so he can meet him and find out more about the man. At the reunion he overhears negative comments about Gran-papa but only a few supportive comments. Ray has to sneak around to meet Gran-papa which angers Papa when he finds out. The family learns that after Gran-papa left Papa's mother he sent Papa letters and money every year all of which the mother sent back every time.

Ray can't wait to go to the Moret family reunion in Louisiana.His sister, Marguerite, is eager to see their cousins, and she's told Ray about the exciting games at the picnic, the delicious Creole food, and the rousing story that Great-gran-papa tells about the family.

But this year there might be trouble. Gran-papa Philippe is planning to attend the reunion. All Ray knows about his grandfather is that they look alike-both are dark in a light-skinned family. And he knows that his father doesn't talk to Granpapa Philippe.

At the reunion, Ray is drawn to his gran-papa, but his father's anger grows. Can Ray manage to bring his family together, or will they have to leave before he is given a chance?

With a sure light touch and deep understanding, award-winning author Mildred Pitts Walter tells a wonderfully candid story about family roots, Creole traditions, and those special inherited characteristics that make Ray -- and each of us -- unique.
